Simply have to understand.
Now, I’m not talking math problems and global warming,
I mean other people,
I, personally, think
It’s just because they’re trying to figure out themselves.
Really, they could just give up.
Most people spend their entire life
Unsuccessfully deciding who they are.
I guess that doesn’t bother me,
It’s their time,
But when they move on to trying to understand me,
That is bothersome.
If they can’t understand themselves,
Why tackle another person?
I believe that, due to how we’re taught and raised,
People try to categorize things,
In a plot to help understand.
The only time a conflict arises
Is when they categorize other people,
Whether it’s respectable or degrading,
People cannot be put into a single word category.
Not easily anyhow.
We’re too fickle and set in our ways.
I gave up on categorizing people,
I just sort them by name.
But for all those stubborn, investigative souls,
Please, if you’re trying to understand me,
Label me as “writer”
And leave it at that.
